I can't believe I never experienced this when I was still living in San Jose. The place is beautiful! I watched How To Be for Cinequest here. The balcony seating is great because it's arranged in a way where you won't have anyone blocking your view. That, and I wish I had their bathroom in my home; from the black granite counter top to the light fixtures. I would love to return to this wonderful little gem in downtown SJ.

I watched Wicked at Orpheum Theatre a week ago and I thought to myself... if only there's such a theater in South Bay....
A week later I went to California Theatre the first time for Cinequest Opening Night. How could I not even noticed this beautiful place before? Maybe I was too preoccupied. Maybe I was too distracted.
I love the uncanny old time Broadway charm of this theater. Who would have thought I would be attracted to something so old fashion.
I look forward to watching another movie or show at this theater. I wish I could just get lost in my dreams and imagination for a day at this place.

What a grand and opulent theatre! This is easily my favorite historic landmark in San Jose, and truly a venue that everyone should visit. I wish they played movies here on a regular basis, but every time the Cinequest Film Festival rolls around, I make sure to catch a film here. The theatre is home to the Symphony, so I'll definitely be back for a concert.

The home of Opera San Jose. This theater is a beautiful reconstructed movie theater retrofitted to be able to accommodate the demands of Grand Opera. The acoustics in the hall are sensational making even the most pedestrian voices sounds exquisite. Fortunately Opera San Jose finds some very talented young singers to assume the lead roles.
